Plateau backs down over alley parking

Plateau borough has had to back down on its blanket ban on parking transformations in alleys, after enough residents in some zones signed the register to force a referendum. Instead of holding the vote, the borough simply said OK, you win, pave it over.

CTV’s account here is rocky, they treat the story as if the Plateau is categorically wrong and the coda reads “The victory isn’t complete – the bylaw will still apply in 498 other areas of the Plateau” – biased much?

Also, “residents in seven zones gained enough signatures to force a bylaw” – they must have meant referendum. Edit, people, edit!
